SCCA Chicago/Milwaukee Track Day & Time Trial

Blackhawk Farms Raceway

About this event

Come out for a full day of driving at an excellent track in a beautiful setting. SCCA's regional full-day event at Blackhawk Farms Raceway is always fun. It offers a non-timed regular Track Event and a timed Unrestricted Time Trial for experienced drivers. The driver's meeting is at 9 a.m. to give everyone more time to get there. We hope this will inspire some of you drivers from south of Chicago and north of Milwaukee (and Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, etc.) to participate.

This event is put on by the SCCA Chicago and Milwaukee Regions.

 If you aren’t familiar with Blackhawk Farms, it’s a 1.95-mile, 7-turn private circuit racetrack located in South Beloit, Ill., on 216 scenic acres.

The Track Event is for drivers of all experience levels. Participants will be divided into run groups depending on the number of track days they've driven in and their demonstrated skills. The Time Trial is a timed event for intermediate and advanced drivers and instructors. We plan on having three runs groups total, and each group is scheduled to have six 20-minute sessions. The schedule may be adjusted in response to changing conditions.

The entry fee for SCCA members for either segment is $265. For non-members, it’s $280. Not a member? Join at SCCA.com.

Transponder rental for the Time Trial is $30. You may use your own transponder if you wish. Lunch is included for all drivers and volunteers.

Check-in on event day begins at 7:30 a.m. The mandatory drivers’ meeting is at 9 a.m., and on-track activities start at 9:45 a.m.

Run group assignments are made by SCCA staff after you register. Please provide information in your MSR profile about any autocross and non-SCCA track driving experience so you can be assigned to the correct run group. Novices will have an experienced driver riding with them during at least one of their sessions.

Safety gear and car requirements are the same for the Time Trial as for the Track Event. Helmet and close-toed shoes are required for drivers. Trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles are not eligible.

Be sure to ask about our ride-along opportunities. For $25, guests can ride with an instructor in one of the later sessions. Ride-alongs are with instructors only and are provided as time and availability permit.

Sponsors for this event are Schlossmann Honda City, Power Stop, and TD Graphics.
